100 miles with Slap Dash Mom

     My friend and mentor, Sadie, is attempting to ride 100 miles on the bike before her birthday (April 9th). If she doesn't make it, she is going to giveaway her birthday present on her blog, Slap Dash Mom. So far, she has done 19 miles.

     To show my support, I am going to join her (with a slightly smaller goal). 

     My goal is to ride 50 miles before her birthday. With 21 days until her birthday, this only averages to 2.4 miles a day. I know that it's a small goal, but I also know that I am running for 30 minutes, 3 times a week. Also, I will be pulling my 2 children in their new bike trailer. I'm sure that they will enjoy it, but that's an extra 80 pounds I'll be pulling around (Ugh!).

     So, wish us luck! To follow Sadie's progress, click on the 100 miles icon. You can follow my progress here or on my Facebook page.

3/20 - 5 miles. Around mile 3, I really started to feel the weight of the kids.
3/22 - 5 miles
3/26 - 8.5 miles. I rode the recumbent that I forgot I have at home. It was so much easier without pulling the kids!!!

2 weeks left until Sadie's birthday and I've ridden 18.5 miles! Only 31.5 more to go!

I think that is great also. Having support can make a difference in reaching your goal. I do wish you luck Kellie on hitting your 50 miles.

Sadie - I need to do 16.6 miles a week to reach my goal. I figured if I do 5 miles at a time, I won't fall behind. Also, our running schedule has been postponed, so I'm not as tired as I though I would be.
